RNA-Seq – Insights into the Active Genome

March 7-8, 2012| Hilton San Diego Resort | San Diego, California

x-genRNA-Seq is perhaps the most complex NGS application.  In nature, RNA transcripts are moving targets, making their characterization and quantification difficult.  RNA-Seq methods are advancing and improving in transcription start site mapping, strand-specific measurements, gene fusion detection, small RNA and long non-coding RNA characterization, and detection of alternative splicing events.  RNA-Seq is transforming our understanding of transcription and regulation, giving new biological insights into the “active genome.”

We are presently accepting proposals for consideration on the following topics for applying research in basic biology, cancer, and complex disease:

  • Data Analysis
  • Mapping
  • Sample Preparation
  • Gene Regulation
  • Non-Coding RNA
  • Gene Expression
  • Gene Fusion
  • Alternative Splicing
  • Direct RNA Sequencing
  • Single Cell Analysis
  • Single Molecule Analysis
